Review of Evergreens

The staff from the manager down are cheerful, enthusiastic and encourage their residents to take part in the activities they arrange and also to use the communal areas. Outside is a patio and a coy carp pond which are lovely again this is to try and keep the residents interested. The staff are always keeping am eye on residents that wish to remain in their rooms to make sure they are safe. It is well organised and efficient and I was luck to find such a good home for mum.

Review of Evergreens

A Wonderful Facility
My mother moved into Evergreens in March, where the staff went out of their way to ensure she had a happy, pleasant stay. When Mum's health declined I was assured that they would provide end of life care for her, which was carried out with respect, consideration and genuine care. I am so pleased that they looked after her so well, and kept her family informed so that we could be with her at the end. I can unreservedly recommend Evergreens to anyone seeking a comfortable safe home for their elderly relatives. The staff in particular were a treasure.

Review of Evergreens

My mother joined Evergreens back in 2010 after a series of falls. From day one, she was embraced (both physically and emotionally) by the very kind staff of Evergreens. Her needs, in terms of healthcare, were very promptly met on an hourly basis. The staff were able to provide extra services such as hair care and foot care making these little events a welcome treat that were well received. Small things such as birthday and Christmas cards went such a long way alongside all the big things that the care home offered. The place is excellent, caring and honest.

Review of Evergreens

My mother has had wonderful care for the past three and half years and continues to be very well looked after. The food is amazing, all home made and there is a great variety. The staff are all fantastic and nothing is too much trouble for both residents and their visitors. I cannot speak too highly of Evergreens and would thoroughly recommend it in every category.

Review of Evergreens

My nan lived at Evergreen for the past 4 1/2 years. We have never faulted the care she has received in fact I would say it is above the standard expected. They truly care. She was well catered for even being given soft food when needed. She looked nice (they did her hair, nails etc) and was clean. There were lots of activities and they often involved the families which was lovely. Highly recommend.

Review of Evergreens

A wonderful care home. My mother was very happy here during her 4 1/2 year stay. The staff were very caring, taking care of her needs. Food excellent. When it came to the time she needed it softer this was done. She was always clean as was the home at all times. Plenty of activities and outings. Always a cup of tea for family when we visited. Many improvements taking place all the time. Will always recommend this home.

Review of Evergreens

I would recommend this home. Patient care is paramount. The whole staff from management to the cleaners were exemplary in terms of work ethic, compassion, standards, and communication. The home is spotless, the food is excellent, and of a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble - even to support grieving relatives.
